Outreach Update

Outreach Team Plans to Help Others

Darlene Giffin shares that New Life members have many opportunities to help others this Summer and Fall.

The Outreach Team--and everyone who can help--plans to be involved with a variety of organizations that reach out to those in need: Lake Schools, St. Paul's (Canton), Canton Calvary Mission, the Akron-Canton Foodbank, and St. Bernard's (Akron). Some plans involve just our own church: making apple butter and our adopt-a-family project. Some projects involve physical activity: packing Thanksgiving baskets or serving meals. Others need financial donations.

No matter what your interest, your age, your abilities, or your experience... you can help New Life serve as God's hands and feet as we help others!
